Autonomous Controlled Landing on Cometary Bodies

Abstract: A simulation environment is developed that will propagate a controlled orbit about asteroid and cometary bodies in the solar system. This simulation allows as input the location and orbit of the central body, and includes models for the gravitational field,...

A Low-Cost Modified Launch Mode for High-C3 Interplanetary Missions

Abstract: A novel method of spacecraft injection to interplanetary trajectories is described that can increase the net spacecraft mass by 50 to 100 percent or more in high-C3 missions. This launch mode employs an unconventional staging sequence, separating the...
